I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. Jefferies Solicitors Ltd dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend Jefferies Solicitors Ltd to anyone who wants to make an accident claim

A delay in treatment claim is launched when clinical negligence has taken place.

Negligence can be identified in a number of different medical fields and situations, for example:

Reasons you may be entitled to delayed treatment compensation

  • GPs have failed to recognise symptoms you have presented to him/her
  • Nurses have not administered medication at the correct time
  • Surgeons have delayed operations
  • Dentists have delayed dental procedures

Delay in treatment claims can also stem from the administration of incorrect medication, an incorrect diagnosis or a failure to refer someone to a specialist. Additional examples from various medical professionals include:

  • Misinterpretation of test results e.g. reading X-rays or CT scans incorrectly
  • Missing important parts of test results e.g. failing to spot something crucial on a scan
  • Not prescribing medicine in the initial stages of an illness

Types of delay in treatment cases

Your delay in treatment can have minor repercussions but, in some cases, it can put your life in serious danger. A lot of illnesses are time critical and the passage of time can sometimes have serious consequences.

Delay in treatment claims can also arise if there is a lack of immediate medical intervention, particularly in the case of accidents and emergencies which can mean life or death for patients. In other cases, a condition can worsen within hours, weeks or months and reach a stage where either treatment is ineffective or impossible.
